Ingredients

  • 400 grams Purefoods Classic Honeycured Bacon
  • Canola oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1 ⁄2 cups flour
  • 1 1 ⁄2 cups Soda sprite or 7up
  • Salt

Instructions

  • Thaw the Bacon then separate strips of bacon.
  • Lay half the Bacon slices in a large frying pan in a single layer then cook over medium heat, until lightly browned but still pliable, about 10 minutes.
  • Let bacon drain on paper towels. Repeat process with remaining bacon.
  • Pour Canola oil into a wok to a depth of about 2 inches and heat over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, whisk egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold one-quarter of the flour, then one-quarter of the club soda, at a time into whites, folding thoroughly after each addition until batter is smooth.
  • Working in batches, dip bacon into batter, then deep-fry, turning once, until bacon is golden brown and crisp, about 6 minutes per batch. Drain on a wire rack. Season to taste with salt and serve immediately.
